Prosecutors have charged four people, including three of the victim's relatives, in the death of a 34-year-old Topeka woman.

Ashley Alcala died after being found severely injured in her home Oct. 18. Her husband, Manuel Campos Alcala, is being held on $1 million bond on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy.

Also charged in her death are Ashley Alcala's mother-in-law, 57-year-old Manuela Alcala; her brother-in-law, 19-year-old Gabino Campos Alcala; and 19-year-old Benjamin Anaya, all of whom are from El Paso, Texas. They are also charged with first-degree premeditated murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree premeditated murder.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor said Wednesday that Supreme Court rules prevent his office from releasing details about Ashley Alcala's death.
